James’ Face Says It All…

For quite some time now, James Corden’s iconic TV segment ‘Carpool Karaoke’ has been late night television gold. If you’re not familiar with this particular segment, what James does is get a music legend or sometimes even an entire band and drive around town with them while singing that musician/band’s hits. Not only that, but they chat, visit certain places, and tell stories.

During a very special edition of ‘Carpool Karaoke’, James was lucky enough to drive around Liverpool, England with none other than the legendary Paul McCartney. The two drove around every part of Liverpool they could find including Penny Lane all while singing some of the most iconic songs The Beatles have ever written.

However, it was during the karaoke of “Let It Be” that Paul opened up about how the song was written. The song actually has deep meaning and once the two finished singing it, James was brought to tears. Watch and see for yourself, but have tissues ready!
